Do you have a signature piece? Something that you wear everyday or as often as possible. Something you love. Something you feel incomplete without.

For me, that piece is this necklace.

It's a teeny, tiny opal pinky ring with a leaf on it's side on a silver chain. It's one of the only pieces of silver jewelry that I have. (I infinitely prefer gold.) It's just very charming on a chain for some reason, but, of course, it didn't start out that way.

I'll admit that when my grandma gave it to me as a gift, she expected it to fit my thin fingers. And naturally my pinky was too fat for this ring! Embarrassing? Yes. Discouraged? No.

It holds great sentimental value for me because it wasn't an occasion or a holiday, my grandma just thought I should have it.

In that respect, I think this ring and I were meant for each other. So even though it refuses to slide down my (apparently chubby) pinky finger, I decided to give it another home on a chain and another life as a necklace.

I wear it pretty much everyday and I feel almost naked without it.

Do you have an article of clothing or accessory that you feel this way about?

Have a great weekend, all!
